Elimination of the Greens from CM, Gassama, Brest: Slimani surrendered
Striker of the national team Islam Slimani, gave an exclusive interview to the Qatari sports channel “beIN Sports”. He returns to the elimination of the Greens from the next WC and the Gassam affair. He also talks about his ambitions with his current team, Stade Brestois.
More than seven months since the elimination of the national team from the next World Cup against Cameroon in Blida (1-2), Islam Slimani still cannot digest this great failure. At the age of 34, he wanted to play another World Cup with the Greens. Gorko regrets the cruel scenario in the last moments of the match.
“I still can’t get over the shock of our elimination from the next World Cup in Qatar. What always disappoints me is that the dream of participating in the World Cup evaporated in 10 seconds. I admit that after the final whistle I felt that football was over for me. Granted, I had already played the World Cup with my country’s selection in 2014, but I was eager to play another one this year, especially since the 2022 edition is a bit special because it will be ‘held in an Arab country’. He will say immediately.
The best scorer of the national team again attacks referee Bakary Gassama. He persists and signs; Gambian bears a great responsibility of failure since March 29. “The scandalous trial is one of the reasons for our elimination from the next World Cup. But the fact remains that we also take part of the responsibility. After going back to the score, we thought we were in the World Cup, but everything changed in the last 30 seconds of the game.
“I want to help Brest maintain it”
In addition, “SuperSlim” talks about his current team, Brest Stadium. He says that he is ambitious to help him stay among the elite at the end of the season.
“Returning to France was a challenge for me. At the age of 34, I don’t think I could have hoped for better than to opt for a French Ligue 1 club. Coming to Stade Brestois allowed me to find playing time in my legs.” he will say.
And let me add: “I want to score goals, bring my experience and, above all, ensure maintenance at the end of the season”. It should be noted that the Algerian striker has been satisfied with only one goal since the beginning of the season.
